THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED HAS LESS MILLIGRAMS OF THC (OR CBD) THAN IT'S SUPPOSED TO?
The Bureau of Cannabis Control BCC) allows products with no more than a 10% variance on cannabinoid content to be sold on the shelves of retailers. What this means is that if a product is supposed to contain 100mg of THC, it can test for no less than 90mg and no more than 110mg to pass.This may seem like a big difference until you take other industries into account.For example, the pharmaceutical industry allows a 20% variance on products that are sold.We always do our best to make our products as consistent as possible and would never release a product that is ineffective.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF THE CANNABIS DROPS?
If taken sublingually (under the tongue), most people feel the effects in as soon as 15 minutes, although for some, it can take up to 45 minutes.
CAN I PUT CANNABIS DROPS IN A BEVERAGE?
Yes, however, when Cannabis Drops are mixed with a beverage, they must pass through your digestive system, which means a smaller amount is absorbed and it takes longer to take effect.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO USE CANNABIS DROPS?
We recommend using Cannabis Drops sublingually, or under your tongue. Let sit for 15-2o seconds and swallow. There are blood vessels under your tongue (your sublingual gland) that absorb the cannabinoids directly into your bloodstream.
WHAT DO CANNABIS DROPS TASTE LIKE?

WILL USING A TOPICAL GET YOU HIGH?
When using cannabis products topically, the cannabinoids only penetrate through the first layer of skin to activate your endocannabinoid system. During this process the cannabinoids DO NOT enter the bloodstream unless applied over an open wound (cannabinoids in the blood stream can lead to a “high” feeling).
HOW DO YOU APPLY A TOPICAL? HOW OFTEN?
Our topicals (body crèmes) should be applied on the external parts of the body, avoiding the face or eye area. Since the absorption rate of human skin is low, we recommend applying liberally and as often as needed.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF CRÈME TAKE TO SET IN?
Generally an effect can be felt within 15 minutes, since cannabinoids in topicals bind to the CB(2) receptors near the surface of the skin and never enter your bloodstream.
WHAT DOES THCa DO WHEN USED TOPICALLY?
HCa is the acidic form of THC and converts to THC when heated up (decarboxylated). It has similar effects to THC and an ability to work well in low doses. When used topically, THCa is known to be anti-inflammatory, immune-balancing, pain relieving and also beneficial when combined with THC or terpenes.
HOW DO TOPICALS PROVIDE PAIN RELIEF?
When using topicals, the cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, penetrate the first layer of skin to bind to your CB(2) receptors, which activates your endocannabioid system. Everyone has an endocannabinoid system - it is responsible for a variety of cognitive and physiological processes and helps lead to homeostasis - internal equilibrium. The cannabinoids in topicals never enter your bloodstream, which is why there is no “high” feeling and why we recommend applying liberally to the affected area. When used topically, cannabinoids are known to be most effective for localized relief from pain, tension, muscle aches, and inflammation.
WILL YOU EVER MAKE SUNSCREEN?
Unfortunately we cannot release a product that claims to provide Broad Spectrum SPF protection since they are regulated by the FDA as sunscreen drug products. We can, however, release products filled with antioxidants, which protect your cells from internal and external damage - like the damage caused by UV rays.
